Get ready for the Water Street Studios annual fundraiser, known as ŏn-sŏm' bəl, to delight your senses on Sept. 8.
The evening will begin with cocktails and substantial hors d'oeuvres at 7 p.m. in the gallery, located at 160 S. Water St. in Batavia. At 8:30 p.m. the new industrial space in the Water Street Studios complex will open to reveal the stunning stage for our runway show.
The show will begin promptly at 9 p.m., followed by Water Street Studio's recognition of their outstanding volunteers and sponsors. Dessert and coffee will be served following the show.
An added attraction of the evening, featured upstairs in the Second Floor Gallery, will be a residents' show of art pertaining to the fashion capitals.
Everything presented in both shows will be for sale, with a substantial portion of the proceeds benefiting Water Street Studios. Runway show prizes will be awarded for "Best City" ensemble, but there will also be a chance for those in attendance to vote for three "Peoples' Choice" winners (one in each of the categories of art, fashion and accessories).
Tickets are available at two levels:
- $85 gets you the full evening's events, including cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and guaranteed seating at the runway ($60 tax deductible). For an additional $100, 4 VIP seats can be reserved, and will include an iced bottle of bubbly.
- A limited number of Late Night Tickets will go on sale at a later date for $35 ($25 tax deductible). The Late Night Tickets include admission to the runway show, plus dessert and coffee (seats are not guaranteed).
